A thousand words

For me to even comment is somewhat redundant, because no words are necessary; beyond lovely.

Chrissy said...

A newly added joy.... The photos are precious...

*bottom lip quivering*

darcie said...

sooooo beautiful! that hair...I cannot get over it!

Liz said...

Gorgeous.... You're just too tired to write, admit it :-)

She looks alert and wonderful. I'm very happy for all of you!

Did you ever see again that old woman in the neighborhood who said she'd pray for you? (March, a year ago) I think she's your family's fairy godmother.

Marylin said...

She! is! gorgeous! :)

Horse Chick said...

She even has pretty feet....baby toes are always so sweet....awhhhhhh!

Christa said...

She's grown so much already. She's an adorable little booger!

Jenni said...

She already has so much personality, and after my two bald-ish babies, I can't get over all that hair!

Ms. Moon said...

Four thousand words!

AKA "Meesh" said...

::speechless::

María said...

DUDE. She looks just like you. I'm starting to believe you led us on all this time, there is no E, and you did it all alone.

Kat said...

That is one helluva cute baby. Worth waiting for, huh?

Mwa said...

The hair! This human came fully equipped!

Heather said...

How beautiful!

Angie [A Whole Lot of Nothing] said...

*sigh*

Making Babies said...

Aaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwwwwww, that's all I can say!!!!

Sadia said...

No words, but "gorgeous".

Anonymous said...

Absolutely gorgeous I tell you ... no wait, no need for me to tell you that! But, still, Sanne is the most gorgeous baby ever. Yolande, S.A xxxx

Corkmum said...

Sanne is grinning already, at her crazy, deranged, besotted father!!
Seriously Martin you should compile all your blog entries into a book, you write with such humour, honesty and emotion that it is a delight to read your words.May Sanne continue to remind you of the miracles and joy life brings

WhatAboutNovember said...

It's a good thing I'm not there, because I sometimes have very strong urges to squish very cute things. My cats can attest to this. That child would be (gently) squished.

Deb said...

E was merely an incubator for your genetic material, wasn't she?

Veronica said...

Beautiful.

(Yes, I know it's unoriginal.)

Poppy said...

I bet you love nibbling on those teeny, tiny toes?

I'm here to tell you...I have seen many, many babies in my lifetime and it is rare to see one as young as your little one who is so bright-eyed and alert.

What a treasure.

callismama said...

That little girl is so adorable. She's making my ovaries hurt in a big way! Look out Struglas!

Seriously...I can't tell you how happy I am for you guys!

Thanks for the photos!

Heather said...

Tee Hee... You SO have a newborn. No brain power for words, just lots of adorable photos.

I cannot get over the hair. A friend of mine had a baby with hair like that, and the girl had pigtails at two months.

Sanne is beautiful.

AnnB said...

A thousand words could never paint such a beautiful picture.

AnnD said...

I love that you keep adding photos, I can just feel your giddiness all the way across the ocean! You can't help but want to show her off!

Ruth said...

what an adorable little face, and all that hair... you must be so proud :-)

kbxmas said...

No words...

OMG she is just gorgeous!

I am so happy for you. Next 6 weeks are killer (hee, hee) I had to get that dig in.

XXXXX

IrishNYC said...

so squishy delicious!

River said...

She's smiling!!!!!
Do not let anyone tell you that's just gas. She's smiling!! So beautiful.

Ginny said...

Oh good god, I just want to pinch those little cheeks!!! So beautiful.

livingrightnow said...

*****I LOVE HER!*****

She reminds me so much of Emily with the hair at birth, I should email you a pic. 9 months on, Emily's hair is now blonde and long! Go figure.

-Tanya

mish said...

Beyond lovely ... she is finally here! (it's still sinking in for me) x

Sinead said...

She has a crazy amount of hair!!! Gorgeous though.

Hope ET is recovering well from the C-section and you are both getting some sleep. The first 6-8 weeks are hell until they work out day from night.

Bonnie B. said...

She already has you figured out, Dad. All she has to do is smile at you, and you're a puddle, right?

Smiffy's Blog said...

Lovely x

Gail said...

You know this time last year you were moaning your face off about Spencer not being up to task - I think that little guy was well up for it looking at those pics of Sanne and you ought to show a little appreciation!!

Spencer you're THE Dude!!

Gail

Keith Wilcox said...

Awww, that's cute man :-)

Shanny said...

Awww she is so precious!!!
I'm very happy for you guys =)

Susanica said...

So two years of blogging and not one image has ever been posted and now this. I personally would like to see 1000 words AND 1000 images of such a beautiful baby. But I'm guessing you're a wee bit too tired to write a lot right now. Am I right? ;-) -Monica

Momo Fali said...

You said it!

Anonymous said...

A blessing beyond measure, Congratulations on your new family life!

struglas said...

jesus christ she couldn't look more like you! congrats to you and your better half. i hope your life is without sleep and full of poop on your hand.

she's very adorable and you should be extremely proud.

and by saying that and how she looks just like you doesn't mean i think you're adorable. just wanted to put that out there.

steph said...

Wow! What a treat! Simply sweet!

I feel ALL BETTER now.

Thanks, Martin.

Putz said...

i once made the statement that a picture is not, I SAY IS NOT worth a thousand words, but maybe just once in theis case i was wrong

merinz said...

She sure is beautiful - must be the genes. Did you and ET win any baby competitions?

hotmamamia said...

I can never get enough of the tiny hands and feet...and that new baby smell...better than a new car smell!
